7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Robin Thicke (pic round)
9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Simple Minds (music round)
So well done to the Speckies for picking up the big jackpot at the Monkey last Wednesday. Phenomenal £210 win! Now we are back to normal. Normality is back to us. Come to the quiz. Normal or mental, it’s always great.
For reading the daily quiz post, you earn a free answer fpr tpmoght’s quiz, so let it be known that the music round at the Brass Monkey tonight includes this song by Scottish pop legends Simple Minds:
Back in the day, I never used to get Simple Minds.
I mean, I thought they were all right but didn’t really understand why they were so popular.
The only thing I ever heard of theirs in the 80s that I really really liked was ‘I Travel‘, which still sounds phenomenal and has Jim Kerr rabbiting on about monarchies and art galleries. Brilliant.
But recently I discovered some belters that I missed at the time, that I only discovered 35 years later: New Gold Dream, Up On The Catwalk, Chelsea Girl, all that stuff. I love youtube.
Anyway, the great thing about coming to the quiz is that when you meet me in person I don’t witter on about the 1980s. I’m too busy asking questions and giving out prizes.
See you later.
